Quotes: "Opinions cannot survive if one has no chance to fight for them."
"The meeting in the open of two dogs, strangers to each other, is one of the most painful, thrilling, and pregnant of all conceivable encounters; it is surrounded by an atmosphere of the last canniness, presided over by a constraint for which I have no precise name; they simply cannot pass each other, their mutual embarrassment is frightful to behold."
"Every reasonable human being should be a moderate Socialist."
